Wow it’s been almost three months since I wrote about my first day as a working mom. Time sure flies. As you can imagine, I have been busy. But thankfully life has settled into somewhat of a routine since that first hectic day. Unfortunately that routine has not left much time for blogging. Which made me sad. I’ve missed my little blog!
At first I didn’t have much to blog about. Working and taking care of Jack did not leave much time for cooking or other projects around the house. Or let me rephrase that, I didn’t have the energy for cooking or projects! We subsisted on a lot of frozen prepared meals (thanks Trader Joes) and went to bed early.
As I’ve gotten settled into my new life (and Jack has started sleeping a little better) I’ve started cooking more often. But after cooking, eating and cleaning the kitchen I was always ready to hit the sack, not post a blog. So what to do about this little blog?
I enjoy blogging. It’s something I’d like to continue doing. After I started work I considered starting up a new blog all about being a working mom since that’s kind of how I define myself now. I thought I would have a lot more to say on that topic. But I’m not ready to give up this blog and I doubt I could maintain both blogs at the same time. Strangely my blog traffic has actually increased during my little sabbatical. It seems I have a website called Pinterest to thank. I haven’t been on it yet but I hear it’s a major time suck. 🙂
So here I am, trying to figure out how to make time for blogging without sacrificing time with my family. Because let’s face it, if I have to choose between blogging and hanging out with this guy:
I’ll choose him every time!
I think where I’ve settled is that I will continue to post about food and other homemade stuff on this blog. But posts will probably be a lot shorter and with less pictures. Sometimes a post might just be a picture with a link to a recipe and a few comments on changes I made and how it turned out.
I might throw in a few posts about being a working mom too. That’s who I am after all!
